EGG line...UGH.... My suggestion would be EKG line....heartattacks at both ends of the ice at times, Eller - GalchenuK - Gallagher

I agree with Clay. More and more i find the PK comments have no basis in reality and must be motivated by something irrational. Race? Jealousy?
- Comment on Nokelainen, Nash re-signed for one year (2012-06-29 08:42:50)
Let's face facts. 1. Gomez is gone. 2. Nokelainen is a bandaid so some others can gain experience playing more minutes in another league. 4-6 minutes a game and taking some key faceoffs won't help prospects develop. 3. Reality check: Galchenyuk will not make the team. What this also means is that we won't be pursuing a Konopka or other face-off specialist...or at least its unlikely. Let's hope Nokie spends the summer working on his draws to improve his percentage their.....its how he can be most effective for us.

This kinda makes me want to go and give them my hard earned money.
- Comment on RFA White signs; Galchenyuk headlines development camp (2012-06-26 13:30:54)
Just a note that the release by the Canadiens says that all the sessions are open to the public........don't forget your BBQ! "The Montreal Canadiens announced Tuesday that 14 players will participate in the second of two development camp sessions, set to take place from June 28-30, at the Bell Sports Complex, in Brossard. All on-ice sessions are open to the public."

I like this post. its the cold hard reality of today's NHL that middle of the road is the norm and a few injuries or bad bounces can put you in the stanley cup final or out of the playoffs depending on how they go. Last year the 2 cup finalists got through the first round in game 7 overtime....what does that say. Ronin

I don't know whether he would be good or not. I don't know if the article was written with a bias or agenda or not. What I do know is that after 18yrs gimme a break. If we based our opinions of HIO site members on what they did 18yrs ago (or even 18months ago) we'd have a pretty skewed....and wrong....opinion of who they are today. Please...I'm not for or against the guy, just for fairness.

I must have stumbled onto a "hate the montreal canadiens" site as opposed to a "fan of the montreal canadiens" site. Sheesh. Take a pill already........or Chill. This trade is not going to impact us much either way, its 4 quarters for a dollar at this point. Life moves along....team is what it is and moaning about it isn't going to change anything, live with it and stop endlessly complaining. Oh god, now I'm complaining about your compaining.....this is what it has come to.

I think I read it here once, but the montreal canadiens are a flagship organization, and capital rich (in terms of money). We should have the deepest scouting, the best trainers, the most sophisticated prospect criteria of any organization in the league....2nd to none....not I said should. I'M usually not negative, but I try to be objective and they are not in a good place right now as an organization.
